"rasta"

I started this during the Christmas break from school. It was supposed to be just another sculpt I wanted to use to keep practicing human anatomy. I had no idea what to call it, but then I showed a friend as i was working on it and he jokingly said it looked like a rasta, so there you have it.

Blue Alien

It was one of those days were I wanted nothing to do with zbrush, but I decided to put together a few zshperes and take it from there. Turned out to be one of my best pieces.


Frank and Husky

I started this a while ago and somewhat abandoned it. Not too pleased with the way he ended up. I hit a bump in the road with this one. Which one is named frank?

Aquajunk level gameplay!

Well the semester is over, and we had a playable level. The professor and all of us had a blast play testing. I think was a very nice level designed by Joey Frederick, and we all came together with our strengths to make this a reality. For some odd reason my sniper rifle came out looking larger than I actually modeled it, much LARGER. I blame the programmer lol. Here is some gameplay footage. Unfortunately i couldn't record beyond 30 seconds because I have the demo version of fraps.


Some screens:

LAKAR

I love gears of war, and for my interior space and worlds class I decided to create a location from the gears of war series not used in a game. Lakar is what I decided to go for, since I found reference photos of it:

Rather than grab static meshes from UDK, I decided to model and texture my own assets, which took a lot of my time. I also regret not using UDKs terrain features. The sharp transitions from concret to grass doesn't look good at all. I also discovered that the first gears of war game for PC comes with an editor allowing you to create your own levels. This was exciting, and turned out to be a HUGE distraction.
